Haiku

Have a look at the bulletin board near the reference desk in the library. People all over Bank Street have been writing haiku thanks to a suggestion from Rena Rice. Why not give it a try – pens and cards are available for you to jot down your creation. All you have to remember is:

  • first line five syllables
  • second line seven syllables
  • third line five syllables

If you are looking for some inspiration we have 49 books on haiku in the collection (call# J 895.6), and browsing J 811 (poetry) is always fun.
